  • Yemen missile targets Saudi military barracks in the south of the country

The Yemeni Army’s missile unit fired a ballistic missile late on Monday targeting the Al-Wajib garrison in Najran, in southern Saudi Arabia.

IranPress- Al-Massirah TV Network confirmed the news but it did not provide details about the attack.

Yemen’s missile unit also fired two ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabian forces in Asir province, in southern Saudi Arabia. 

Head of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi said earlier that Yemen’s army and popular committees have the potential to target aggressor countries’ military sites, even they are located underground.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for the past three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Earlier this month, savage and ferocious Saudi-led air strikes on Yemeni city of Hudaida , left at least 40 civilians killed and some 70 injured.

Recently, Yemeni civilians are struggling to stay alive amid fierce ground and air attacks by Saudi-led coalition on the Yemeni port of Hodeidah.

Supplies of water and electricity have been disrupted. Hospitals do not have enough doctors and medicines. Worse still, many fear that the flames of war will be burning at the downtown area if street fights break out between the Saudi backed forces and Yemeni army.

The Saudi coalition continues to target  civilian sites, vital facilities and infrastructure in its war on Yemen.

The Saudi-led coalition attacks against the densely-populated city and the war-torn country’s most vital port was launched despite numerous warnings by the international community and prominent aid groups.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
